TSHBP Sends Warm Regards

Plan Update
April 29, 2024
Texas Schools Health Benefits Program (TSHBP)
  Dear TSHBP Member Districts;

We hope this message finds you well. We are writing to share an update with you for the Texas School Health Benefits Program (TSHBP). 

The TSHBP Board of Directors passed a resolution on April 24, 2024, to amend the time frame within which each member district must provide the appropriate notice of withdrawal from the TSHBP Program from 90 days (June 1st) to 75 days (June 15th). Districts that elect to participate in the options presented by the TSHBP, must notify the Program no later than June 15th of their election. Districts who wish not to participate in any of the options presented by the TSHBP must notify the Program no later than June 15th of their withdrawal.

It’s worth noting that in the event a member district decides to withdraw from the TSHBP Program, there is an obligation to continue honoring any payment commitments as outlined in Section XVII (Withdrawal) of the TSHBP Bylaws. This includes fulfilling the current additional contribution of $150 per employee per month, which remains applicable after September 1, 2024.

As mentioned in previous communications, the TSHBP will propose additional plan options for districts to review when they receive their renewal packet. We will begin delivery of these options on or before May 15th. The TSHBP will also schedule webinars after the options are delivered so that our member districts can attend and learn about each of the plan offerings before the decision date of June 15th

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need further clarification. We are here to assist you in any way we can.

“Did you read the contract?” asked the school board president. “Yes, Of course I did! responded the school superintendent. “Then why did you sign it?” asked the board president.
